Hideki Kamiya is a Japanese game designer best known for his incredibly blunt, sometimes irritable nature and his critically acclaimed action games, which tend to cram together ludicrous amounts of stylistic insanity and razor sharp action gameplay. Formerly of Clover Studios, a subdivision of Creator/{{Capcom}} until it was shut down, he now works with other former Clover staff at Creator/PlatinumGames.

* WorldBuilding: While the stories in most of his games can ([[KudzuPlot for the most part]]) be summed up as "go kill the bad guys and look cool", there is a ''shocking '' amount of detail that goes into the world itself, from lore on every individual enemy and their role in the world, justifications of gameplay mechanics with plausible in-universe explanations, and meticulously followed art directions that even something as innocuous as the menu screens strictly adhere. The main plots may be simple, but they do not sweat the little details that most other games take for granted.

** He is very outspoken about his dislike of [[ExecutiveMeddling studio executives tampering with his games and franchises without asking]]. Some choice red button topics include the box art of ''Bayonetta 2'', Microsoft's marketing of ''Scalebound'', the Wii port of ''Ōkami'', and ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis''.[[note]]Which he wasn't involved in but dislikes anyway.[[/note]] On the other hand, he is relatively at peace with his lack of involvement in the later ''Devil May Cry'' games, going as far as to claim that he is only the creator of the first game specifically, rather than the series as a whole. He also approved of ''Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble'' for the DS and the series's anime adaptation.

* JerkassHasAPoint: While he may not be ''nice'' about how he phrases his opinions, he usually is justified in the positions he takes. Also, more often than not he only blocks and/or calls out people who provoke him first or break the rules that he has clearly established (e.g. check his twilog to avoid asking a repeat question, don't ask him about games he didn't work on, etc.).
** {{Jerkass}}: That said, most people tend to respond to minor slights on Twitter by ''ignoring'' them, not [[HairTriggerTemper blowing the hell up]] and blocking the offender.
